International Women’s Day is celebrated all around the world on March 8th. The United Nations first celebrated International Women’s Day in1975, but its roots were developing from the turn of the century. It is now supported globally by governments and non-governmental organisations, for profit and non-profit organisations, professional and community groups, women’s networks and the media. It is an opportunity to celebrate how far women have reached in terms of equality, and to initiate action to gain gender parity. Let us all #ChooseToChallenge what is, in order to achieve what can and should be.
